Mine do not. If they want money, they need to earn it. They're pretty good at doing so.
I did but only if all my chores had been done every day of the week. If I didnt do them one day i didnt get an allowance. I'm not sure if we'll give our kid an allowance
Nope. I never got an allowance as a child either.
No, we're about earning money, too, when they're old enough to really understand it.
No. We will give him money for helping out with above and beyond chores.
Duh, that's what getting an allowance means and has always meant. If a child wants an allowance, aka spending money & saving money, the child has to earn it. If the child does not do his or her assigned chores it is deducted from their allowance and could be deducted until there is no allowance to be had come allowance day.. Allowances teach children how to handle money at a young age, how much allowance to spend and how much allowance to save for that special something they really want. Simply giving them spending money for chores done teaches them if they sweep the floor and take out the garbage mom will give them money to go spend on junk.
